New International Version

Galatians 6:1-18

Doing Good to All

1Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. 4Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, 5for each one should carry their own load. 6Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.

7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Not Circumcision but the New Creation

11See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!

12Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh. 14May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which6:14 Or whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation. 16Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule—to6:16 Or rule and to the Israel of God.

17From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.

18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.

Wagalatia 6:1-18

Chukulianeni Mizigo

16:1 1Kor 2:15; Rum 14:1; 15:1; Ebr 12:13; Yak 5:19; 1Kor 2:15; 3:1; 4:21; 2The 3:15; 1Kor 7:5Ndugu zangu, ikiwa mtu ameghafilika akatenda dhambi, basi ninyi mlio wa rohoni, mrejesheni upya mtu huyo kwa roho ya upole. Lakini jihadharini, ili ninyi wenyewe msije mkajaribiwa. 26:2 Rum 15:1; 1Kor 9:21; Rum 15:1; Gal 5:13; 1The 5:14; Yn 13:14, 15, 34; 15:12; Yak 2:8Chukulianeni mizigo ninyi kwa ninyi, nanyi kwa njia hii mtatimiza sheria ya Kristo. 36:3 Rum 12:3; 1Kor 8:2; Rum 12:3; 1Kor 8:2; Gal 2:6; 2Kor 3:5; 12:11Kama mtu yeyote akijiona kuwa yeye ni bora na kumbe sivyo, basi mtu huyo anajidanganya mwenyewe. 46:4 1Kor 11:28; 2Kor 13:5; Lk 18:11Lakini kila mtu na aipime kazi yake mwenyewe, ndipo aweze kujisifu, bila kujilinganisha na mtu mwingine. 56:5 Rum 2:6; 1Kor 3:8Kwa maana, kila mtu atauchukua mzigo wake mwenyewe. 66:6 1Kor 9:11, 14; Rum 15:27; 1Kor 9:11, 14Basi, yeye afundishwaye katika neno na amshirikishe mwalimu wake mema yote.

76:7 1Kor 6:9; 2Kor 9:6; 1Kor 15:33; Ay 13:9; Lk 16:25; Rum 2:6Msidanganyike, Mungu hadhihakiwi. Kwa kuwa kile apandacho mtu ndicho atakachovuna. 86:8 Hos 8:7; Rum 6:23; Yn 3:18; Ay 4:8; Mit 11:18; 22:8; Hos 8:7; 10:12; Rum 8:13; Yak 3:18Apandaye kwa mwili, katika mwili wake atavuna uharibifu, lakini yeye apandaye katika Roho, katika Roho atavuna uzima wa milele. 96:9 1Kor 15:58; Za 126:5; 2Kor 4:1; Ay 42:12; Ebr 12:3; Ufu 2:10Hivyo, tusichoke katika kutenda mema, kwa kuwa tutavuna kwa wakati wake tusipokata tamaa. 10Kwa hiyo, kadiri tupatavyo nafasi na tuwatendee watu wote mema, hasa wale wa jamaa ya waaminio.

Si Kutahiriwa Bali Kuwa Kiumbe Kipya

11Angalieni herufi kubwa nitumiazo ninapowaandikia kwa mkono wangu mwenyewe!

12Wale wanaotaka kuonekana wazuri kwa mambo ya mwili wanataka wawalazimishe kutahiriwa. Sababu pekee ya kufanya hivyo ni kuepuka kuteswa kwa ajili ya msalaba wa Kristo. 13Hata wale waliotahiriwa wenyewe hawaitii sheria, lakini wanataka ninyi mtahiriwe ili wapate kujivuna kwa habari ya miili yenu. 14Mungu apishie mbali nisije nikajivunia kitu chochote isipokuwa msalaba wa Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo, ambaye kwa yeye ulimwengu umesulubiwa kwangu, nami nimesulubiwa kwa ulimwengu. 15Kwa maana katika Kristo Yesu, kutahiriwa au kutokutahiriwa si kitu, bali kule kuwa kiumbe kipya ni kila kitu! 16Amani na rehema viwe na wote wanaofuata kanuni hii, na juu ya Israeli wa Mungu.

17Hatimaye, tangu sasa mtu yeyote asinitaabishe, kwa maana nachukua katika mwili wangu chapa zake Yesu.

18Ndugu zangu, neema ya Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo iwe pamoja na roho zenu. Amen.
